FENS Hertie Winter School

Meeting leading scientists in their fields and having the opportunity to discuss their work is a key success factor for young scientists planning their research work and for developing science networks. Residential schools have proved to be a good way of encouraging intensive networking between young and established scientists. The principle behind them is that leading scientists in a specialist area (faculty) are brought together with a manageable number of particularly promising young scientists (students) for about a week at a delightful but remote location. Residential schools enjoy a good reputation for the promotion of new talent, particularly in the USA.

The Hertie Foundation has been running a one-week Winter School In collaboration with the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) every year since 2003.
